Are you looking to add a bit of frill to the bottom of your knit garments? The lettuce hem is a fun choice, and though it's commonly done on a serger, this wavy effect can also be done on a sewing machine. This technique is best done on a lightweight knit fabric, like jersey, and, in this case, fabric rolling comes in handy. This is a unique way to finish those hemlines, both on the bottom of garments or on the bottom of sleeves. It's mostly used in children's clothes but if you like it, there's no reason you can't use it in other projects as well. Ready to give it try? Watch this video for a step-by-step tutorial on sewing the lettuce hem.
